ἤγειρεν ἡμῖν τῶν παθῶν τρικυμίαν
ἐχθρὸς κάκιστος, πνευματώσας τὸν σάλον,
ὅθεν ταράσσει καὶ βυθίζει καὶ βρέχει
τὸν φόρτον ἡμῶν ψυχικῆς τῆς ὁλκάδος:

ἀλλ᾽, ὦ γαλήνη καὶ στορεστὰ τῆς ζάλης,
σύ, Χριστέ, δείξαις ἀβρόχους ἁμαρτίας,
τῷ σῷ πρὸς ὅρμῳ προσφόρως προσορμίσας,
ἐχθρὸν δὲ τοῦτον συμφοραῖς βεβρεγμένον.

Prayers

Our wicked enemy raised a tempest of passions,
rousing the sea with his winds ; whence he tosses and submerges and floods the cargo of our ship the soul. But, do thou, Ο Christ, calm and stiller of tempest, anchoring us safely in thy harbour, show our sins dry and this our enemy soaked with disaster.
